lay on, Macduff (and don’t forget the mortar board)


———————————————————————————–

“What’s that giant book you’re reading? Is that the Bible?”

“No, it’s the Complete Shakespeare.”

“Oh, so it’s the British Bible.”

————————————————————————————

“That book is huge, do you have to read the whole thing?”

“Well, actually we are just reading a selection of plays from the anthology. So, no.”

“…”

————————————————————————————-

“That book is so big!”

“Yeah, and she’s got it all memorized.”

“Uhm….”

————————————————————————————-

“Are you reading scripture?”

“No, (laughs) Shakespeare.”

(Turns and walks away)

————————————————————————————-

“So, what are we working on today?”

Shakespeare.”

“Which play?”

“Macbeth.”

“…Out, damned spot; out, I say.”

There are 46 days until graduation.

I still have 3 papers to write, 6 exams to take, 1 recital to perform, 2 shows to memorize and perform,1 listening journal to complete, 3 brand new songs to learn and memorize for juries, 1 after-graduation job to find, and 9 classes to pass.

That’s a lot for 1 poor woman to have to accomplish in little more than 1 month.

A new universal rule:

The more people who are carpooling, the more likely they will be late.

I finally saw Inception over break. I’m confused. Everybody told me it was confusing. It wasn’t.

Sincerely,

Emilie

  1. Oooh, I should make a list of the things that need to be accomplished. May as well be terrified instead of just moderately anxious. 🙂

  2. That reminds me of the one-acts freshman year, in Actor’s Nightmare.

    ‘Are you counting, Willie? One…two….threePAAAAUSEE!!!”
